Hi,

I'm new to the group and also to TL speakers.
I have a chance to pick up Lentek Studio Monitors from the original owner.
What kind of performance can I expect from them?

Thanks,

John in Ontario CANADA Confused

Closer to Cambridge R50s than IMF TLS80s as they were designed by Burt Webb Smile .

Do a search of the pdf files at www.gramophone.net where you'll find a very informative review of the Lentek Monitor in the May 1976 edition Cool .

Lenteks like all other varients of this type of design will not sound good with substandard (any) valve amplification, only a good solid state amplifier with a high damping factor (to control the bass unit) should be used.
